I struggle with this… I either try to fill too early and wait too late. I like the running list lookingheavenward…do you keep it on computer/phone or on paper? I have a daily pill box with four compartments and they fit into a case. I fill them on Sundays also. I have a separate weekly pill case that Nicole keeps her vitamins in and she…[Read more]
That Nicole had her site change yesterday…. I don’t like to see her in pain but she had a dentist appointment this morning and I had to reschedule it yesterday because she wasn’t going to be able to go. I am grateful that we did …. the weather here today has been nasty and we have had over 5 inches of rain. We would have been out in that…[Read more]

The point about how your role/relationship with the caree affects your ability to cope with different things is a good one and very interesting. I’ve thought about that a lot.
This is funny… believe me I need to change a lot….
* I need to stop letting things pile up
*I need to slow down and stop rushing
*I need to actually look at my to-do list for the day
*I need to write everything down in ONE spot and not on post it’s, envelopes, legal pads, notebooks etc.
Denise was joined by Bruce McIntyre on Oct. 6th to discuss what is the worst caregiving emotion. Wow– this is so easy for me and required no thought at all. It was guilt and I suspect this is a very common […]
Enjoyed listening to the podcast this morning; thanks for posting! All the various emotions that immediately lead to guilt….that’s my problem too and I think it’s something that needs to be discussed over and over again. We need lots of reminders that this is OK and that there are even things we can do to make ourselves feel better. I…[Read more]
